The Next Generation Q20 seems like a De-evolution

The Blackberry blog made waves recently by announcing the new Q20.

In the features listed, the very first thing Blackberry revealed is the return of the Menu’, ‘Back’, ‘Send’ and ‘End’ buttons and the trackpad.

The trackpad!! It lives!!!

After going forward and investing in the new gesture based touched screen, this seems like a step back for the company.

This isn't a surprising move though. The Q10 polarized the Blackberry community by doing away with the buttons and the trackpad. After all the hullabaloo, it seems like they have finally listened to the other group wanting a taste of the old times.

This might come too little too late for the fallen titan, whose stock values have plummeted far from their glory days.

Will this new phone be the new Hail-Mary pass for the company? More importantly, will the company live long enough to see the phone completed. Let's just wait and see.

Do your Pets do the Roomba?

The Roomba vacuum cleaning robot isn’t just a trendy household appliance. It may have a clever navigation system that can easily calculate its route 67 times every second. It has 3 cleaning modes to cover every kind of floor space.

It can go under and around furniture, avoid walls and human feet. Its kinda OCD that goes back to clean the same spot every time it enters a room. Unlike a pet, you don’t need to feed it, it recharges itself in some corner it chooses to hide in. I dunno sometimes I think my Roomba is making plans in some corner of the house. 



Though I doubt my Roomba can take whatever sinister idea it has, the way Dexter does. But the poor Roomba however has spawned a series of trendy Youtube videos. It is well the ultimate pet ride.

Geonaute's 360 Degree Sports Camera

With the rush of action head-cams on the market mainly targeted for extreme sports enthusiasts, Geonaute is reinventing the point-of-view action cams by giving you another angle and its a full 360 degree one. Showcasing a three 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, Geonaute's 360 degree sports camera gives you a detailed spherical field of view which offers you more options for editing later on. In terms of getting the best shots, you can set the camera to capture everything or stay in one position like a rear facing shot.

For one thing with this high-octane sports cam, you are you're own walking/running/spinning Google's Street View. In 360 video mode the resolution is 2,048 x 1,024 and in still mode and even time lapse mode, you get a 4,096 x 2,048 resolution. The Field-of-View is 360 degrees on the horizontal and a full-on 150 degrees vertically, but still a complete viewing sphere as promised. The 3,000 mAh cam battery can run up to two hours of footage, and the microSD card slot will take 32GB cards. It's a pretty sturdy outdoor cam that can withstand the elements and the same forces the sports enthusiast is subjected to.

iPhone 5 Takes Purple Photos

Poor Tim Cook so much trouble with the iPhone 5. First, the hideous Apple 3D Maps, the glitches with the i06, the public dissing by Google and now the Purple Photos. Steve Jobs is doing a *facepalm* in iHeaven right now.

When Apple fails now, the first thing they do is blame on the user. I guess the best excuse ever is to blame the stupid consumer for shelling outcash for a rushed dud.

I bought an Phone 4 for $300 had it for 8 months and sold it on Craigslist for the same price so I can upgrade and buy the new one. To switch phone, Apple is a good trade off, the price doesnt drop to shit levels, the phone pays for itself.

On the new iPhone 5 though, my gadget geek friends will buy the latest iPhone regardless if it was made of shit- they'll buy it and even sell their souls because its from Apple and everyone has one. Damn iSheeps!
Me included.

Hold It Away from the Sun
So the overpriced iPhone 5 takes Purple images when out in the sun and we're "holding it wrong?" says Apple.

Yeah, how about that?
